You know that 20% pay bump you got when you switched over? Part of it was to compensate for the new bs you have to deal with.

Yes. Everyone on FB likes to make fun of Accenture, but it's actually way better than Big4

I also made the move from ACN to EY and I was shooketh by the amount of process, and sheer number of policies. Took me a year to finally understand how things work around here

Interesting. All of you guys that hate EY, what is it about it? I joined from a smaller firm, and I love it. Other firms are better? Can’t wait to try them out 😂

EY pays you time and a half for every hour worked over 40 hours! .... if you are lucky enough to get promoted to intern

I moved from ACN to EY and currently like EY a lot better (independence and time sheets aside).

Same. Timesheet policy is actually better and the app is easier at EY IMO.

Have been at Deloitte and ACN. The culture is better at EY. The people are better. ACN has by far the worst leadership/people out of the three. Yes EY is more conservative than the other big 4 and has many policies/procedures though.

Lol. Sorry to hear that OP. I guess the lesson is not to expect a different color grass on the other side. But then we would all be monks if that were the case
